Abstract:

Under the present contract the authors have developed and extended previous work on the description and understanding of laser behavior from a fundamental microscopic point of view and we have generalized the previous work to include multimode effects, pulse propagation, collision effects in gas lasers and a more exact treatment of the radiation matter interaction in a quantum Boltzman equation for the laser. In addition the authors used a general approach to the laser problem to derive and develop kinetic equations for optical pumping which contain existing theories as limiting cases and go beyond present theories in the treatment of radiation. This report consists of the abstracts of papers published in physics journals and books, abstract of talks presented at American Physical Society meetings and abstracts of Ph.D. theses completed during the present contract.
